From August Uncommon Tea

White tea with orange blossom, almond and honey

A tea that is gentle and sweet like a summer breeze and sunlight-dappled cobblestone. It’s a mild white tea with soft notes of orange blossom and honey. The floral notes of white tea are complemented by the depth of sweet almond and ephemeral orange trees in bloom. A tea for easy mornings and that much-deserved afternoon break. It’s perfect on its own or with a dessert. And it is an out-of-this-world iced tea. Its name is inspired by the graceful, warm sound of American Analog Set’s understated indie rock album of the same name.

A tea for lovers of almond and citrus flowers.

This smells like a type of almond cookie we get a lot around Christmas and sort of tastes like it too. While the cup was still hot the honey flavour came on very thick but as it has cooled it toned down enough to let the almond cookies (with orange blossom highlights) shine through a bit.

The white peony (bai mudan) works really well here as a base, emphasizing those sweet, floral flavours of blossom and rich, fruity amber honey. I think I taste a hint of natural hay, stonefruit, and cucumber notes, which I didn’t expect when I smelled such a flavourful tea. Good combo.

Steep Count: 2 – Yep, it’s mellow. Barley malt comes through more on 2nd steep (interesting ingredient – builds both the almond cookie and honey imo).

K is for… Know by Heart!

The last time I tried this tea was during a Geek Steep episode and I did like it a lot then, but I wasn’t able to focus on it at the same level that I would have if I hadn’t been having a very involved conversation.

With this tea getting my undivided attention, I liked it a lot more and was even more impressed with the composition and flavours! Like many blends from August Uncommon, there is quite a lot going on here – but it all clicks pretty seamlessly in my opinion. The profile is sweet but not sugary with the main “body” flavour being this sort of almond/marzipan shortbread note – flaky pasty and butter, nutty, a little coating on the palate. I feel like it definitely leans in to the natural flavours of the white tea as well, and on any other tea base type I don’t think you’d get the same light and crumbly pastry affect as what you’re getting in this cup. In addition to that, there’s a bit of a honey note and a really pleasant delicate orange that threads the line of orange blossom versus actual orange fruit – just in a very non-acidic or juicy kind of way.

It’s a lot of scrumptious in one cup!

I’ve tried this one on two separate occasions, and I pretty strongly dislike it, despite consisting of flavors I generally love (orange blossom, honey, almond). The first time, it somehow tasted like pencil shavings. This time around, it has a strong alcohol flavor that overpowers everything else.

Usually I’m not a huge fan of white tea, as I feel it’s too subtle, causing me to oversteep it and then getting a less than desirable result. This is a flavored one, though, and that makes a big difference. The orange blossom floral note is quite pleasant, which is saying a lot because generally I’m not into floral teas. Somehow, the floral notes along with the almond flavor all wrapped up with hints of honey works really well. It’s surprisingly tasty for a white tea. It makes a very nice afternoon break cup of tea, especially with a little something sweet to snack on. This sugar addict is having a rough time giving up her sweets completely.

I had some chocolate with crisped rice before this cup and I keep getting toasted rice notes while drinking this. It’s nice, but distracting from the flavors of the tea. It smells like honeyed almonds and I get a little bit of that in the sip, but there is also a flat dough taste too. I can pick out the orange if I think hard. I’m not digging on this one so much, but I don’t often find white teas I like.

What I smell: toasted almonds, orange marmalade, barley

What I taste: orange rind

Notes: Amazing scent from the dry leaves, but quite a mellow tea when steeped. Reminds me a bit of an orange saison in tea form. Mild almond notes in the background too.

I mostly followed the instructions on this one.

What a lovely blend – all mauve pinks and moss greens with some earthy brown twigs thrown in for good measure. It reminds me of spring. The dry tea is fruity and candy sweet. One steeped, there is the slightest bitterness. I can taste the almonds. It reminds me of an herbal tea. My husband loves it so that must be right (he only drinks herbals these days). Overall, it’s good but not one I would reach for on a regular basis.

Thanks, amandastory516, for sending this one!
